ST Tiger in the Tank

When I was a kid, ESSO had an ad saying using their gas was like having a tiger in your tank. This reminded me of it. Happy ST.

I remember that slogan. no longer tigers tank in Finland, it is no longer Esso service stations here. That image is very funny and suitable ST-image.

I remember that ad. And you could also buy fake tiger tails that clipped to you gas tank cap so it looked like there actually was a tiger in your tank. Thanks for the memories (Oh, that's Bob Hope's theme)

Esso was before my time, but I remember him during the early Exxon days. :-) He positioned himself well on this convertible.
